There can be few more historic places to test your handicap than at the long-established Worlebury Golf Club, near Weston super Mare. It was founded in 1908 by Henry Butt, a local philanthropist, with a group of like minded prominent businessmen, initially for their own enjoyment.

In 1972 the members kindly donated their shares to Worlebury Golf Club and the club became a private members club. It is one of the few golf clubs in the area that owns its own course and playing Worlebury introduces you to a haven of peace and tranquillity in the countryside. Yet it's easy to forget that you are just two miles from the throbbing M5 motorway. This traditional parkland course offers all the challenges of golf in a hilly terrain - with an excellent mix of holes providing a stiff challenge to both low and high handicappers, under the watchful eye of club professional, club captain and club secretary.

There are a number of demanding holes but pick of the bunch is the 448 yard 1st. It takes a good drive off the tee to give you a chance of paring the hole since the green is elevated with a sharp drop on the left hand side and an intimidating bank to the right - as well as bunkers to the back and side. Anything other than a decent tee shot and your round is off to a difficult start. The 269 yard short par 4 13th might help make up for this tough start but overall the course is a tight one with lots of out-of-bounds areas, subtle borrows on the greens and even though there are no water hazards to worry about, there is one further thing that you will have to overcome - the outstanding views overlooking the Severn estuary from the Second Severn Crossing to the east and Cardiff & Swansea to the west.
